South Africa can't bear the cost of any more errors at the World Cup and should win practically the entirety of their staying seven recreations on the off chance that they would like to meet all requirements for the semi-finals, previous all-rounder Jacques Kallis has said.
South Africa lost their competition opener to England by 104 keeps running before they endured a steamed 21-run rout against Bangladesh on Sunday.
"I think you'll require six successes, possibly five with a great run rate, to complete in the best four," Kallis said in a section for the International Cricket Council.
"So South Africa nearly need to win each game they will play. There will be no edge for blunder.
The main four groups from the new round-robin configuration meet all requirements for the semi-finals and destruction against India on Wednesday could likewise conceivably influence South Africa's net run rate, which will choose the last standings if groups are tied on focuses and wins.
"It doesn't get any simpler however against India yet it's their first game and our third, so perhaps that could give us the edge we need," Kallis included.
"They've not played for a week and possibly there will be some first game nerves, though we're settled.
"Odd things occur in this game and in the event that we can get a success, at that point I figure we can go on a streak and we are still sufficient to be a contender."
Kallis scrutinized commander Faf du Plessis for the absence of a reinforcement plan amid Bangladesh's innings.
"It's incredible having a course of action yet you need a back-up when it's not working, I felt we were one stage behind the whole match and just strategically somewhat off," he said. "We should be somewhat more brilliant."
Wounds to South Africa's pace assault have likewise tossed a spanner in progress with experienced Dale Steyn yet to completely recoup from shoulder damage and Lungi Ngidi harming his hamstring against Bangladesh.
"The damage to Lungi Ngidi positively didn't help Faf," Kallis included. "He's a world-class player and a major piece of our assault. You must play Dale Steyn against India now, and ideally he is near wellness.
"We must play every one of our cards and we can't manage the cost of any longer senseless oversights at crucial stages. These are the best sides on the planet and they'll generally rebuff you."
